We are back to Wednesday again and I'm not sure I like how fast this year seems to be going! I doubt it will slow down though!
Wednesday means a new challenge at Fab'n'Funky Challenges but it also means that the winners and Top 3 from last week have been chosen. All the details can be found over at on the F'n'F blog.
We have our blogging Mama as our host this week - the fabulous Judith. I love the theme this week as it it totally me! So without further ado our theme is...
One for the Girls
Just make a female-themed project and link it up - couldn't be simpler! We have two sponsors this week too. My Creative Classroom and StampArt Design by Kathryne. Two sponsors means two winners so let's get crafting!
This is my card for the challenge - the girly elements are the butterflies, pearls and decorative edging.
I used a StampArt Design by Kathryne image for my card called Butterfly Border 1 and coloured with FlexMarkers in Aquamarine, Surf Blue and Navy Blue. I inked the edge with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Antique Linen for an aged effect.
My base card was made from two of the Spellbinders Grand Decorative Labels One cut in kraft card. I attached with the super stick red liner tape. While still in the die I inked through with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Broken China. My main background was made with Coredinations cardstock. I embossed using the lattice Embossalicious folder from Crafter's Companion and then lightly brushed a Versamark inkpad over the top. I added Debbi Moore's metal magic and heated from behind with a heat tool. I really like the effect that this has created.
My sentiment topper was created with Spellbinders Scalloped Labels One in kraft and Coredinations. Using Claritystamp's Letterbox Alphabet set and Broken China Distress Ink I made the sentiment as I wanted. The squares come as triple, double and single boxes so I after stamped the triple box, I masked it off and then used the double box stamp to create a five letter space for my wording. Claritystamps really are the best quality I've ever had the pleasure to use. My tiny butterflies were punched using a Tonic punch and I just coloured a piece of super smooth paper with the Aquamarine FlexMarker to get the perfect match. The pearls came free from Create and Craft a while back.
I really hope to see you join us for our girly challenge this week.
